Job Advert Role Description

We would like to recruit a CAMHS Teacher who shares our vision of student-centred learning, framed within an exciting and flexible curriculum.

We are a collaborative and supportive team and aim to recruit a like-minded individual who would enjoy the opportunity to deliver subjects at Key stages 3, 4 and possibly 5.  We are keen to broaden our curriculum offer and would welcome ideas for strategic development.

We set high standards for teaching and learning and our students have very good levels of attendance and engagement.

You will need to be an outstanding practitioner, committed to the best possible outcomes for young people, passionate about influencing educational best practice and able to work effectively within a multidisciplinary team of professionals.

Also, a flexible, enthusiastic and self-motivated teacher who is able to support forward thinking change and respond quickly to the needs of each young person we teach.

The successful candidate may take responsibility for the Maths/Science curriculum development as well as the pastoral care of a small tutor group supported by the Head of School.  Candidates with specialisms other than Maths/Science will also be considered.

This is an excellent opportunity for candidates from mainstream or specialist education or community provision who are looking to move into a hospital specialist setting.

At Priory Education we are proud of our reputation for delivering quality education and care services with positive outcomes for children and young people aged 5 to 25 who have experienced difficulties in their previous education placements.

Southampton CAMHS Outreach School, an outreach of Clayhill School, is an independent co-educational day school for young people aged 11 to 18 with mental health problems. Our students are all inpatients of the Tier 4 CAMHS Unit at The Priory Hospital Southampton.  We have a team of specialist teachers and teaching assistants who deliver education to all young people at the hospital where the school is based.

It is our intention that every student develops their courage, determination and skills as a learner, so they can re-engage confidently with their education on discharge. We liaise with mainstream schools and colleges and each young person has an individualised curriculum plan in each subject area, with progress being closely monitored.  Our school offers a broad based academic and enrichment curriculum, with its own teaching spaces, teaching technologies and outside spaces.

  • Enhanced disclosure cost coverage
  • Comprehensive induction and commitment to on-going training
  • Online benefits and cash back rewards
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Dental Insurance
  • Travel Insurance

If you have relevant experience, possibly with relevant additional qualifications, then why not contact the Head of School, Samantha Dalton for an informal chat on 02380 840044.  Visits to the school are warmly welcomed.
